comment Is there an exhaustive list of what Windows logs or can log?
@TomWijsman - Substitute 'impossible' for 'Unlikely, difficult to be comprehenisve'. And Windows Server is part of the Windows family you included in your tags.

comment Can I install Microsoft Visual Web Developer w/o a SQL Server Express installation?
This has been a big bug-bear for me - it amazes me the quantity and scale of some of the supposed dependencies that WPI comes up with. In this case, it wanted to instal SQL Express AND SQL Compact Edition along with various bolt-ons and updates - none of which were needed.

comment How do I get the Windows 7 taskbar with the Start Menu to display on dual monitors?
@nhinkle - That's fair enough. It's a good product - it's a shame the publishers couldn't just accept the recommendation without abusing it.

It may be that we can't have our proverbial 'cake and eat it' - But I just didn't want to give up without a fight.

Unfortunately, when I initially could not create the cross-workbook links, I did my homework, and the only solutions I found, insisted that I had to open the 2nd workbook, within the same Excel instance. I haven't found an alternative way of creating the necessary links.

The whole point of my first paragraph was to explain the background, including the reason why I can't open a second instance of Excel.

That 71.4C is Tcase - the temperature of the case of the CPU. The internal temperature (Tjmax) will typically be 10-120C higher than that, which is what most temperature reporting tools will give you. 95C under load is still too hot - but not as hot as you think.
